UltraEdit Comments

Great Product Great Support

Positive Comment by asjones
about UltraEdit Mar 2015

I am a long time user of UltraEdit. One of the neat things about UltraEdit is how configurable it it..... There are tons of settings for those that like to tweak. The defaults are great, but if you want to learn and do some powerful stuff the website had great tutorials and examples. If that is not enough direct email support is always fast.... Never had to wait forever hoping someone might respond like with other products.

You truly get what you pay for.

about UltraEdit Jun 2011

I use UltraEdit as a text and HTML editor. It can be setup to colour code the HTML code and this makes code level editing much easier. Search and replace is about all I do with it so I can't speak about using it on programming code.
